Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Large hummingbird with long white-tipped central tail feathers. Male is entirely blue-green; female has gray belly, green back, and obvious stripes on face. Bill extremely long and decurved. Found in forest, but also visits feeders at forest edge. Not easy to see away from feeders; often flies through the forest understory very quickly, occasionally stopping to feed at flowers.
